35 of the Best Porto Restaurants, Bars and Markets

The Northern Portugal city has emerged from Lisbon’s shadow with a food scene that rivals the bigger city to the south.

 The city is a great launching spot for exploring Portugal’s most famous wine region by car or on leisurely-paced river cruises.

Fueled by a constant stream of international visitors and a growing population of expat residents, Porto has a food scene that improves and expands each year.



 Tapabento is a favorite Porto restaurant among locals. Tapabento has a casual, funky decor that lives up to a name that translates to tapestry.


O Rápido

O Rápido is proof that fast food doesn’t have to be bad food. To be clear, we’re not talking about chain restaurants with arches and kings. We’re talking about tascas.


Casa Guedes

Open since 1987, Casa Guedes’ specialty is the Pernil com Queijo sandwich. And what a specialty it is!



Conga’s juicy Bfianas are so flavorful that we didn’t feel compelled to add Piri-Piri sauce or hot mustard like we normally do. That’s saying a lot.

Café Santiago

Packed with multiple meats, covered with melted cheese, smothered with tomato-beer sauce and topped with a fried egg, the Francesinha is a meal on a plate.
